My name is Ean Steidel and I am the owner and sole inspector at Great Home Inspection.
I grew up here in Roanoke Virginia where I attended Northside High School and then got my Associates of Applied Science at Virginia Western Community College for Mechanical Engineering.
I've had quite the journey to become a Home Inspector. Out of college I repaired high end coffee equipment for a small company in North Carolina. Then, I drafted blueprints for a civil engineering firm in Orlando Florida. That was until March of 2020, when all the construction work at our firm stopped, and I got laid off. I realized I needed to use my engineering skills and knowledge for something else. I discovered Home Inspection as a matter of chance, and it was a perfect fit.
I trained under one of the most experienced Home Inspectors in Florida and conducted 37 inspections under his supervision. I utilized my knowledge of complex mechanical systems (which is exactly what a home is) to truly understand the concepts of construction and building science.
Now, back in my hometown of Roanoke, I am a licensed and insured Certified Home Inspector. I am constantly educating myself with new, up to date, information and practices to be able to offer you the most in depth home inspection in the area.
I'm excited to work for you. Give me a call today for a quote.
